Another gigantic phone, you say? Yes indeed - Pantech just announced the 5.9" Vega No. 6 for its home market of South Korea, though there's no reason in particular to expect that's where this mega-phone will stay.

The No. 6 is the largest 1080p display phone announced to date, which is an accomplishment... I guess. A quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (can we just start calling it 'SS4P' or something?) powers the No. 6's screen of many pixels, and a 3150mAh battery keeps the lithium ions flowing freely. They've stuffed a 13MP camera in there, too, because "bigger numbers" is basically this phone's calling card. And 'Full HD LTE' - yes, that actually appears in the press release.

While it may not match the diagonal dimension of Huawei's Ascend Mate, the No. 6 is packing an arsenal of internal specifications that will leave its Chinese competitor with a serious case of hardware horsepower envy. I am so sorry for that sentence.

Pricing and release information were not announced, but expect the No. 6 to start appearing in cargo shorts later this year.

    Wait, you mean Pantech actually makes Android devices that aren't at the bottom of the spec list, of laughably poor quality, and sold to poor, unsuspecting customers in stores like Kohl's, K-Mart, Sears, etc?

    Good. At a ppi closer to 300, you'll actually be able to enjoy those extra pixels. I hope this becomes standard, instead of 5".
